Western State Bank in West Fargo

You’ll feel right at home with Western.

We’ve been in West Fargo for over 20 years and it’s no secret we’re proud to be part of the community. From supporting West Fargo High School, Horace High School and Sheyenne High School programs, to sponsoring Fargo Moorhead West Fargo Chamber of Commerce events, to participating in the annual West Fest parade, we mean it when we say we’re your hometown bank.

At every stage of life, you get more than excellent banking benefits and customer service. Our Lil’ Buckaroo Club teaches kids about savings and puts on family-friendly events throughout the year.
